    Insideline tests the 2011 Camaro ZL1 - 12.2@117

    Not all that impressive but it is Fontana and a convertible:

    I'm amazed man. although it's really heavy the numbers are pretty awesome, specially the slalom speed.

    But the ricey stuff on this car is a big let down, look at that exhaust pipe!

    For a supercharged V8 that isn't all too impressive straightline wise. The coupe will be faster hopefully.

    It's decent but for a 6.2 liter blown V8? The M3 can do low 12's high 11's with no blower on a smaller motor... and people call it slow.

    ^ that's with FBO. most people run high 12, if not 13 seconds. I'm sure camaro with FBO will be fast. and the camaro was a convertible, take the convertible m3 and you are definitely in the 13s and high

    Yes, with FBO, but still a tiny motor with no blower right?

    The camaro with FBO will be much faster.

    The vert m3 is a convertible hard top, not a fair comparison.

    I want to see track numbers. Anyone can make a fast straighline boat, but a race track is something else. Im sure a stock m3 could would spank this boat around a track. I dont know but this camaro just doesnt look good, looks monstrously big and heavy and lazy. We'll see though, once people start modding them and putting down numbers. This is a soft top too so i cant imagine the couoe being much faster ....

    Here is there vid on the 11 gt500:

    Interesting that the gt500 was slower in the slalom but .08(.89 to .97 respectively) better on the skidpad. It is however a coupe vs vert comparison.

    not a bad slalom, 1/4 mile is respectable...


    What the $#@! is up with those soda can tailpipes?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
